just a little

blue....
feeling a little bit sad.
about nothing particular.
silly me....

had a good visit w/ the folks...
chilled....
the boys LOVED the hotel pool...
but today...
i'm
just sort of a blah...
rainy day....
just
not
a fan
of the day
today...
went to walmart...
(which did nothing to cheer me, let me tell you...
hate walmart...)
got my favorite....
"you have your hands full" comment.
now.
my boys,
who are not perfect angels by any means
are usually being well behaved when I get this
particular
comment...
which leads
me to believe
i only get it because
i have 3 boys....

other comments i get frequently...
"are they all yours?"
no.
no,
they just keep following me around....
(when did 3 kids become a side show? 3 is a lot now? i had no idea....)
and
"are you going to try for a girl?"....
THAT one
is perhaps my least favorite...
I always reply the same....
"well, not right this second."
this tends to fluster the moron that decided to ask the question....
"ooooh, well, I didn't mean now...haha....ooooh, that's funny...."
yeah,
not so much.
grrr-rr...

in other (less whiney) news.
jack got his hair cut off...
he didn't want to start kindergarten
and have anyone ask if he was a girl...
can't blame him...
and...
i like his new haircut.
it's not buzzed...
so i'm ok.
jared also got his cut,
and hates it...
so noooooo photos of the j-man.
whooopsie.
sorry j....
it'll grow...
braces and a haircut...
what a send off to middle school.
think he'll ever forgive me?
yeah,
nooooo photos of him on the blog...
that's a direct order.

i think living close to dave mirra might be rubbing off
on my children....
coley has been working on some "tricks"...
some bike skillz if you will...
we managed to finally make it to the bike shop
he's been begging to go to
this weekend...
and found a bmx bike he now "needs"....
however...
gabby's comment about dave mirra not being in the X-games this year
because of a lacerated liver...
hmmm....
sort of stuck in this momma's mind.....

lastly...
project runway.
can i just say
what a crime it was to kick off allison
(loved her)...
and
keep the freak (aka vincent) !?!?
who said his dress was like a "child's painting"
and that he "got off on it"....
yuck....
my
favorite line
was allison saying
to laura "it's a good thing you're wearing your riding outfit in case it's horses"
sigh...
i shall miss her.....

Hey girl. people need to just not open their mouths. I get those kiddie ones too, but my fave is from CHA pea dinner:

(to me, in a very excited tone): SO, how does it feel to walk around with NISA FIIN???

WHAT? Who says that? Nisa and I just kinda stared at her. Then I said something lame. and walked away.
smiles,

AnneMarie said...

I get these very same comments... love them! lol!
I laugh now when people say them and I reply to the "handsful" by saying, "I wouldn't want it any other way! I am truly blessed!"

I have 3 that follow me around too.. every 2 years some one else joins in our little parade! lol!
